Voters lists USA

Family history: Ancestry Uncovers California’s Political Persuasions With More Than 30 Million Names in Voter Registration Lists, 1900-1944: "PROVO, UTAH January 31, 2008, the largest online resource for family history, today announced the launch of California Voter Registration Lists documenting more than 30 million names of Californians who registered to vote between 1900 and 1944. The collection, now searchable for the first time online, comes just prior to Super Tuesday, one of the most significant milestones in the 2008 race to the White House.

The unique collection reveals the political persuasions of California residents including famous celebrities who registered to vote during the first half of the 1900s. The collection also documents the voters name, occupation, gender, age, street address, voting district, and city and county of residence. Many of the earliest voter registrations include detailed physical descriptions of the register and even naturalization information. Because the lists were updated every two years, the collection enables users to track their ancestors through time and serves as a valuable replacement for census records since California did not take state censuses."
